I highly recommend this tour. You need a good 1-2 hours to enjoy both houses. Our 6 year old son did well on the 1st house but didn't last for the 2nd one. I had to take a break... read more

I highly recommend this tour. You need a good 1-2 hours to enjoy both houses. Our 6 year old son did well on the 1st house but didn't last for the 2nd one. I had to take a break with him and my wife finished the second house. It's very educational and gives you a prespective of how the rich... More

If you like history, you must visit Hackley and Hume homes. It is the Hackley House that is like none other. The man put thought into every inch of this house. There are messages in the woodwork and in every corner. Seriously, I can not describe the small details that make this house special. I hope I am not over... More

I just don't think I was in the mood. This place has some unique history and some very interesting decorations. I just was not that into it. The tour guides are GREAT and if you like architectural history, you'll enjoy it. Again, it was not them, it was me. VERY well maintained!

Stepping into the hackle & Hume home is taking a step back in time. The first thing you will notice is the detailed handcarved woodwork. Simply beautiful. Each home is different, as each man Mr. Hackley. and Mr. Hume had different tastes. Your trip will start off in the carriage house,be sure to visit the second floor. The homes are... More

If you are in town on vacation, or a local resident, this is a must see. The amazing woodwork alone is worth the visit. It's decorated beautifully during the holidays, but any time is a good time to visit. It only takes about an hour or less, but is a heritage piece you will want to see in Muskegon.

Best time I think to visit is at Christmas when the whole house is decorated in period decorations. Amazing Lumber Baron home - shows how they lived and what they contributed to the community.

The Hackley and Hume site are interesting and enjoyable any time of year, but the very best time to visit is when the homes are decorated for Christmas. Exquisite antiques, wonderful decorations - a must-see for families, couples, singles. Probably not good for very small children, unless they are good at "look but don't touch".

My husband and I actually came across these 2 homes by accident. And we are glad we did! It was the end of the day, so we had the guide to ourselves. These are two beautiful turn-of-the- century homes. If you have any interest in beautiful woodworking, the Hackley house is your dream come true. Be sure to have your... More

Tile the Hackley home is ornate and garish, the Hume home is simple and almost too plain. It leads one to wonder how the tow men every became partners, let alone very successful business men. The Hackley home allows the visitor to see French wallpaper, busy wood carvings, classic Victorian furniture and lovely stained glass windows. The Hume home allows... More

The tours given of the Hackley and Hume homes is one of the best I have ever been on. I have visited the historic sight several times and find the tours consistent.
